LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The Louisville Metro Council is hoping an investment in technology can help put a stop to illegal dumping.

Friday, Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer and members of the Metro Council announced 19 additional surveillance cameras will be installed around Louisville Metro.

The new cameras are solar-powered and can detect motion from a long range. They are also portable, which means they can change locations to target illegal dumping activity.
